Sounds like the wild west. An area to avoid me thinks.

I hadn’t heard of any operating in the Gard but I’m pleased that they have been locked up.

I’m very used to hearing about such operations taking place closer to the border of Spain. I sent emails to 5 French friends in the Gard, 3 of whom live in Nîmes, but none of them had heard about this gang, although all 5 were very pleased that they had been apprehended and jailed.

Don't forget they are pirates, LeD. So peg leg Pierre and Pugh l'aveugle would be likely. Sorry to put the Black Spot on you.

Doesn't mean they're not French, though.

How about Lotfy Boussouak, obviously a criminal with a name like that.

I agree :good: I wasn't suggesting that they weren't, the thread title says that they were.

very interesting - I've just heard of a car jacking at 6 am in the next village last wednesday. 3 'pirates' hid and then stopped a car on a roundabout and made off with the vehicle. this is rural Anjou!
